Okay write this down...

From now on, if a kernel update breaks wireless, just run:
Code: [Select]
sudo rmmod 8812au
then
Code: [Select]
sudo rm -v sudo rm -v /lib/modules/4.10.0-28-generic/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/8812au.ko
then
Code: [Select]
sudo depmod -a
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dkms remove 8812au/4.2.2 --all
then
Code: [Select]
sudo dkms install 8812au/4.2.2
then
Code: [Select]
sudo modprobe 8812au
and you should have wireless back

No need to connect to anything by ethernet cable, and don't worry if you get errors from the first 2 commands (the last 3 commands would probably be sufficient, but run all 6 anyway).
